Is this possible? It seems like it should be but, it's difficult to find an explicit relationship between a general function of one variable x (let's say we are only interested in functions that decay to zero as they go to plus or minus infinity)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

it seems like summing a bunch of gaussians of arbitrary width located at various points along the domain, one should be able to construct an arbitrary function but I don't see much useful material on it.
